Stoglin, Faust Earn ACC Honors
March 5, 2012
On Tuesday, Stoglin was voted onto the All-District III Team by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. The team picked the top 10 players from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Maryland.
Stoglin, a sophomore guard from Tucson, Ariz., finished the regular season as the leading scorer in the league with a 21.2 points-per-game average. He was joined on the All-ACC second team by Kendall Marshall of North Carolina, Michael Snaer of Florida State, C.J. Leslie of NC State and Erick Green of Virginia Tech.
Should he remain atop the ACC's scoring list, it would be the sixth time a Maryland player has led the league in scoring. Joe Smith (1995), Walt Williams (1993), Len Bias (1985 & 1986) and Albert King (1980) are the others.
Stoglin was an All-Freshman Team selection a year ago.
Faust, a guard from Baltimore, is among the league's freshmen leaders in scoring (8.5 ppg), rebounds (4.0 rpg) and assists (2.1 apg). It marks the third straight season a Terrapin has made the All-Freshman Team (Jordan Williams 2010).
Faust is averaging 13.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals in the last eight games since returning to the starting lineup after Pe'Shon Howard's season-ending knee injury. Faust has scored in double figures in six of the last seven games and seven of the last nine.
He was joined on the All-Freshman Team by Duke's Austin Rivers, Ryan Anderson of Boston College, Dorian Finney-Smith of Virginia Tech and Shane Larkin of Miami.
Rivers was a first team All-ACC selection and was joined by Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes of North Carolina and Mike Scott of Virginia.
The third team was comprised of Seth Curry of Duke, C.J. Harris of Wake Forest, Lorenzo Brown of NC State, Kenny Kadji of Miami and Mason Plumlee of Duke.
Voting was conducted by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
